Regina Spektor : "On The Radio" Lyrics - Beastly Movie Soundtrack

"On The Radio" lyrics
by Regina Spektor
(Beastly Movie Soundtrack)

This is how it works
It feels a little worse
Than when we drove our hearse
Right through that screaming crowd

On the Radio (Regina Spektor song)Regina Spektor (Image via Wikipedia)


While laughing up a storm
Until we were just bone
Until it got so warm
That none of us could sleep


And all the Styrofoam
Began to melt away
We tried to find some words
To aid in the decay


But none of them were home
Inside their catacomb
A million ancient bees
Began to sting our knees

While we were on our knees
Praying that disease
Would leave the ones we love
And never come again


On the radio
We heard, 'November Rain'
That solo's really long
But it's a pretty song
We listened to it twice
'Case the DJ was asleep


This is how it works
You're young until you're not
You love until you don't
You try until you can't


You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
And try to love the things you took


And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some
Someone else's heart
Pumping someone else's blood


And walking arm in arm
You hope it don't get harmed
But even if it does
You'll just do it all again


And on the radio
You hear, 'November Rain'
That solo's awful long
But it's a good refrain
You listen to it twice
'Cause the DJ is asleep


On the radio, on the radio
On the radio, uh oh, on the radio, uh oh
On the radio, uh oh, on the radio

     Spektor has said that she has created a great number of songs, but that she rarely writes any of them down. She has also stated that she never aspired to write songs herself, but songs seem to just flow to her. Spektor's songs are not usually autobiographical, but rather are based on scenarios and characters drawn from her imagination. Her songs show influences from folk, punk, rock, Jewish, Russian, hip hop, jazz, and classical music. Spektor has said that she works hard to ensure that each of her songs has its own musical style, rather than trying to develop a distinctive style for her music as a whole. (source: wikipedia)
